General Mach Discussion / Spindle won't start
« on: March 02, 2019, 05:06:10 AM »
I’m running a Stepcraft 600 with Mach3. I had a proxxon spindle which was switched with a Stepcraft relay SWS1200.
I have now switched to a Kress 1050. The spindle now does not switch on and off as I run a work piece.
I have to manually switch the spindle on and off when the work is finished. (Plugged in to normal socket)

When I push the spindle button on Mach3 I hear a chick at the relay but the spindle does not run.

In the Ports & Pins window, if I change Step Low to ON the spindle runs but is still not switchable. (see photo)

Anyone, any ideas?

Many thanks
David

Whats the advantage of cutting with plasma? Is it justthe possible thickness?
What will you build?

I am using DEVCAdCam as I am into RC model aircraft.
I have been cutting Lite Ply upto now and intend to be cutting up to 8mm ply.
Possibly, I will also try some thin alu.
I am buidling a quite large glider tug. 2.70m wingspan with a 62cc petrol engine.

I'll have to wait until tomorrow to try that. My wife has painted the stairs, so I cannot get to my room.

Thanks, I've done that. I did notice the Yellow LED flashed just before the Z reached its home but went out again.

I have done quite a bit these last few days. A cuple of small issue cropped up today.

1. The Yellow Abnormal conditions LED in Mach3 came up.
It says “Axis are not refed to normal”

2. When I press “Go to zero” after cutting, the Z axis goes up to its physical stop and the Reset button lights, the machine obviously stops.

Any ideas?

I'll bear that in mind, thanks.
I've learnt  a great deal these last two days and I am sat here reading the Mach3 guide and actually starting to understand it.

It is exactly as you say: When homed, the Y reads 598. I have inserted 598 in Home Off.
How do I set my Soft Limits?
